Event Details

Join us for a Festival within a Festival — the Film Festival within the Frankie Manning Centennial Celebration.  Leslie Li will show selected clips from The Kim Loo Sisters documentary-in-progress prior to the full screening of The Savoy King: Chick Webb and the Music that Changed America.

The Kim Loo Sisters were dubbed “the Chinese Andrews Sisters” and the obstacles they overcame in their ascent to stardom sheds light on the experience of many Asian Americans during the Swing Era (1935-1945).
